About Joe McClean

After studying Shakespeare in college, nepotism from a construction worker Uncle in NJ delivered the education that would actually keep Joe fed. Over the years, his time swinging a hammer dwindled as he studied at the Royal National Theatre, acted in touring children's theater, wrote & directed two indie features, joined the WGA, and started a family... And on occasion, he still opens his toolbox.

Coming Soon!

The psychological thriller VIRAL, produced and written by McClean, directed by Blair Underwood, and starring Blair, Sarah Silverman, Jeanine Mason, and Alfre Woodard is currently in post production.
